Comforting Quick Cream Soups (Vegan) Recipe
1 cubed potato
1 water, or stock
BRING TO A BOIL AND SIMMER
ADD ONE OF THE FOLLOWING
2 peeled stalks of broccoli or 1c flo, rets, chopped
1 dried onion
1 veg bouillon
2 carrots, chopped
1/4 tsp curry powder
1 cup mushrooms
1 tbsp wine (1-3t)
2 stalks celery, chopped
1/4 tsp tarragon, marjoram, or savory
1 package frozen spinach or kale
1 grated nutmeg
1/4 tsp lemon juice
1 cup frozen corn
1 tsp fresh parsely
1 cup frozen peas
1/8 tsp each of ginger and pepper
1 tsp vinegar (1-3t)
1 sweet potato or half an acorn squas, h, peeled and
1/2 tsp italian herb mixture
Simmer the soup until the veggies are tender. Puree in blender or
food processor until smooth. Add salt/pepper to taste.
Sally's notes: Instead of stock of bouillon cubes, you can take out
1/2c soup after pureeing and dissolve a T of miso in it, then return
it to the pot and mix. Almost all the combos are good with the
addition of 1/2 an onion and a clove or two of garlic sauteed in
sherry. Other possible additions (not combined of course) include: 1T
tomato paste, 1/2c leftover beans or grains, a few dried mushrooms or
dried tomatoes, a few tablespoons of sauerkraut, a T of capers or
chopped pickle added before serving, toasted pumpkin/squash seeds or
wheat germ sprinkled on top.

Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
In planning a diet, the important thing is to also endeavour to restrict your ingestion of refined carbohydrates, salt and fats.
The problems associated with low carb diets
Its popular as hell, but it is really safe for you?
Remember, one point that is usually overlooked, it is damned hard (although not technically impossible) for vegetarians to take up a reduced carb diet.
Reducing carbs may mean missing out on vital nutrients from healthy foods which should be part of any sensible diet, specifically those obtained from fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
Superfoods rich in flavonoids
(inlcudes garlic, fennel, kidney bean & peppermint)
The nutrients known as flavonoids which exist in these natural foods are believed to have properties as anti-carcinogens.
Nutritionalists looking into the medical effects of flavonoids think they may well have most other health giving capabilities, including anti-dermatitis and antiplatelet properties.
The majority of these are also low in calories, so should be included in every diet.
